Christophe Galtier doubted his ability to coach PSG

Christophe Galtier doubted his ability to coach PSG

« I didn’t know if I was strong enough to accept Luis Campos’ proposal. » It is with these words that Christophe Galtier, current coach of PSG, told Brand, on Friday, of his reaction in the minutes that followed the proposal of the new sports director of the capital club. However, the French coach (56) assured that he was convinced of it his choice : « If I didn’t accept I had to withdraw, because having the opportunity to coach this great club with these players only comes once in a lifetime. »

As he himself admitted, his life then changed, especially in contact with stars like Lionel Messi, Neymar or Kylian Mbappé. The PSG coach was necessarily consulted about these, preferring to talk about them “great personality” describe them rather than“ego”, a more pejorative term in his opinion. And guaranteeing: “There is no great champion without a great personality ». Galtier also denied that there was any jealousy between the three.

“I don’t think Messi will have a different motivation after the World Cup”

Christophe Galtier was finally asked in more detail about Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé. As for the form of his Argentine player, he wanted to reassure, welcoming his preparation for the start of the season with PSG and not considering any relaxation on his part once the World Cup in Qatar is over: « I think Messi will not have a different motivation after the World Cup ».

Of recent contract extension of Kylian Mbappé at PSG, his manager felt the choice of the French striker was in no way motivated by money, ensuring such a player could earn a lot no matter which club he played for. Christophe Galtier had a completely different argument: “ I think Kylian loves PSG ».
